'Tis the Season - IV

Set of Three Hand-Incised and -Painted Gourd Red Owl Ornaments (LEO Design)

These little red owls—suitable for year 'round companionship on your bookcase or window ledge—are handmade in Peru.  When I had my store in Greenwich Village, I kept a large wooden bowl of them near the front of the store—piled high with owls.  Each little gourd is collected, dried, burned (for dark color), painted and hand-incised (providing highlight detail).  Due to the varying shapes and decorating, each individual has his own style and personality.  We sell them in trios—a small "parliament" of owls, carefully grouped to provide a bit of variety in each trio.  They will provide beautiful color on your tree or will sit happily on your mantelpiece or windowsill.  Click on the photo above to learn more about them.
